Happy Friday! I love friday's then again who doesn't! :).
This weeks challenge was Mother's Day. I kind of struggled with what to colour up for this challenge, rummaged through my bella binders looking for the perfect image. I kept flipping back to the flower section, so that's what I ended up doing.
It's been almost 2 yrs since I lost my Mom, and every year for Mother's Day, she would want flowers for her garden. She loved flowers, any color, any kind. They always made her smile.
So for the card, I decided to colour up Wildflower Trio.
Stamped it on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prismacolour pencils. I based my colours on the designer papers from Memory Box. Purples are one of my favourite colours, but sometimes find it hard to match cardstock with, because there are so many tones of purple out there, some with pinkish tones, some with blue tones. I cut out the flowers using labels #18 s/binder die then layered it onto some deep purple c/s cut with labels #9 die. I left the die in place and sponged some versamagic spring pansy ink around the image.
Finished it off with stitching, glitter, ribbon, prima flowers and some punched leaves using Martha Stewart leaf punches.
